on december 18, 2008 with outgoing president george w. bush. listen to what he said, also his body language. [video clip] >> you said, i am optimistic that we can change the tone in washington. >> that was a hopeful person saying that. >> are you less hopeful? >> we work together, there were some bipartisan accomplishments but the rhetoric got very tough. some people here in this town use the politics of personal destruction to advance their agenda. i do not want to sound self- serving, but i have not. i do not think a president should. i was hoping for better tone, and it did not happen. host: as you reflect on george w. bush at the end of his two terms. guest: president obama has said things better very similar. it is not just about washington. washington is a reflection of a broader culture. we live in a polarized culture. we live in a culture that celebrates -- notoriety is the quickest ticket to 15 minutes in the 24 hour news cycle. the other enormous difference that contributes to this -- i do not know how you reverse it. 50 years ago, you had two political parties that were both appe
, president obama held fewer news conferences than george w. bush or bill clinton. over four years the president held 79 such briefings, that is ten fewer than mr. bush and 54 fewer than president clinton. >>> starting this weekend, president obama's limousine will carry license plates with the phrase taxation without representation. it's a protest over the district of colombia not having voting representatives in congress. president clinton used the plates but george w. bush chose to use a different design without the protest phrase. >>> white house is changing the signature threshold from 25,000 to 100,000 for official responses to petitions on the website. not a bad move. it comes after a request that government build a star wars like death star that got enough signatures for an official white house response. >>> and in utah, george burnett, a pro oil activist and small business owner known as the i love drilling guy is using his new smoothy shop to take a stand against liberal spending. he charges liberals $1 more for than conservatives for a 16 ounce smoothy. >> i'm very open
to be lower than his first. president george w. bush's second inaugural in 2005 drew up to 500,000 people.>> it may be sot before we get the official estimate of the crowd here, certainly not 1.8 million who were here in 2009, but estimates before the inauguration ranged from 600,000 to 800,000 but what we can report to you is that there were a lot of americans in the national mall today who were overjoyed to witness history, inauguration of any president is a remarkable moment in american history. and they were there today, many of them with their children to see these events. the president was inaugurated of course under the -- in the shadow i probably should say, the capitol dome. a fascinating thing about the dome of the capitol, this year is the 150th anniversary of the completion of the capitol dome. something that was mentioned today during the president's inauguration. here is a look at the dome as it was under construction during the civil war. now, when the civil war broke out so much cast iron was being used in building the dome and it was piled up all around the construction
and was a special assistant to george h.w. bush during the administration of george w. bush served as director of policy and planning and richard haas said it's time to rethink sovereignty. he argues sovereignty is not only becoming weaker in reality, but needs to become weaker. states should want to weaken sovereignty in order to protect themselves. those are some of the ideas. before proceeding i want to make one thing absolutely clear. i'm not talking against international law or relations nitrite clear between trains nationalism and globalism. there's nothing wrong with having international, the two nations. the united states as a nato treaty with western europe, defend ourselves, and international treaty. there's plenty of trade treaties. same thing. i am criticizing the book supranational or transnational, think of the transcontinental railway, something across nation. so the term transnational is used and that's distinguished from international. those are some of the ideas you could stick in the refit little now. what are global or transnational lives? what are global laws and rules mea
clinton term and the second term of president george w. bush. gentlemen, let's start with a simple question. joe, to you, is there a second-term curse that all second-term presidents face or is that mythology? >> i think it's mythology. it's circumstances. i think this second term is starting with a little wind at his back. remember, the president came in in a terrible economic crisis. you know, if you listen to a lot of the economists, things are turning around. that's a significant difference and, you know, in politics, you face head winds and sometimes the wind behind your back. it really feels like this could be a very positive time. >> i don't think it's a myth. second terms have been tough, traditionally, but no magic to it. getting the economy under "control" will be very, very important. the president faces one problem, though, and we become almost a parliamentary system in the actions of legislative bodies and he's got a republican house that he's got to find a rhythm to work with him. president clinton did that, joe, his second term we were able to balance the budget for
two living presidents george h.w. bush who was just released from the hospital and is who is now recovering, and george w. bush who sends his regrets. >> so as it happens because of the illness of the elder mr. bush, there will be only democratic presidents in attendance today. very, very unusual circumstance. the headline of the hour, the news broke moments ago by bob schieffer is that the republican leadership at this moment is in the white house having coffee with the president. perhaps a hopeful sign that agreements might come with the new year. >>> here's what's coming up the rest of this inauguration day. at 10:40, the president and mrs. obama leave the white house for the capital. the inaugural ceremonies begin at 11:30 and include the ceremonial swearing-in of vice president biden. then at 11:55, president obama will be sworn in by chief justice john roberts. and at noon, the president will deliver his inaugural address. that will be followed by lunch at the capital. then around 2:30, the president leads a procession back to the white house where he and the first lady wil
the speeches of george h w bush, lyndon johnson, jimmy carter, and george w. bush. >> i, barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear -- >> this weekend, the 57th annual presidential inauguration. sunday, the official swearing in ceremony at the white house. our coverage includes your phone calls and begins a look back at the president's 2009 inaugural address. then monday, the swearing in noon eastern at the us capitol. live all-day coverage begins at 7:00 a.m. eastern on c-span, c- span radio, and c-span.org. also, join us on facebook and twitter #inaug013 >> throughout inauguration day, our website will have added features, including video feeds from our c-span cruise, video on demand from the events. this is at c-span.org. president george h. w. bush was inaugurated in 1989. he was nominated for two terms before beating michael dukakis. resident bush was sworn in using the same bible that george washington used. this is about 25 minutes.

george w. bush. the zone is particularly sensitive because it would completely bisect the west bank, dashing with a remote hopes remain for two-state solution. the obama administration has refused to cut aid or even offer criticism, limiting its reaction to calling the expansion "counterproductive." new details have been revealed on the obama administration's weapon sales to bahrain after -- during the ruling monarchy's ongoing crackdown on opposition protesters. the website propublica reports the u.s. has sold weaponry including ammunition, combat vehicle parts, communications equipment, blackhawk helicopters, and an undisclosed missile system to bahrain since the protests began nearly two years ago. it is unclear if all the purchases were delivered, but they provide a key window into the extent of u.s. support for the bahrain government -- regime as it faced international condemnation for repressing dissent. all the weapons are supposed to only be used for self-defense, some may have been used against civilian demonstrators. iran helicopters reportedly fired on protesters in march
. the famous example in recent history is george w. bush. in 2005, remember he came out and did that press conference and said he had political capital and meant to spend it and the first thing he tried to do was pass a plan to reform social security that was just destroyed by the democrats, and then katrina happened. and his presidency was over by the end of 2005, at least the second term. so, you know, i spent a lot of time reporting on this the last year, talking to white house people, and they were very acutely aware of the dangers hidden in a second term. and i think the -- you know, i think what they'll be looking for is not overinterpreting that mandate, putting out an agenda one, that he campaigned on. not doing things he didn't talk about in the campaign, but two, trying to find some kind of bipartisan compromise in a congress that is very polarized. >> this is a key thing isn't it, jamal. you saw with the gun proposals. they were very, very ambitious. i was very proud of the president for what he did there, given the way we campaigned for that kind of thing on this show. and yet
them. >> and by the way his approval rating was right where george w. bush's was starting hicks second turn and below bill clinton, and 51%. and he said i'm going to close gitmo, that did not work out his way and almost everybody said it would be impossible to close because we've got a problem, we have nowhere to put those people. >> he said he'd close it in the first year. >> the first thing he signed. >> absolutely. the left plank after he didn't do it the first year, he'll do it the second year and the third year and the fourth year. >> harder when he's a candidate to an achieve. the economy, they said if they passed the massive unemployment, it'd keep under 8%, it was spiked up to 10% and down to 7.8 and they say it's a fail. and killed osama bin laden, and passed health care, what kind of program we'll be we're only getting it now, it passed two years ago. >> alisyn: and iraq, promised to end iraq and making steps towards that as well. >> iraq and afghanistan. >> although unemployment continues to be a problem. i read this morning one more person unemployed, manti te'o's imagery g
with us. >> thank you. >> former president george w. bush and his father, former president george h.w. bush, aren't attending this inaugural. president -- former president bill clinton and jimmy carter are. we are waiting to see president clinton. stand by for that. also taking a closer look at the downside of winning another four years of the white house. it doesn't always go so well. the second-term curse, as some call it. that's coming up as well. first, though, inaugural flashback. >> let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. >> we all remember the phrase the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. but even more important than the phrase was the whole attitude that fdr had. he projected optimism and projected forward movement. people felt that's the mystery of leadership, that somehow the depression they were suffering, they weren't going to be alone anymore. they had a leader who was going to take care of it. when you have diabetes... your doctor will say get smart about your weight. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shakes. they h
will dispute the fact that george w. bush was aiming for the bleachers with his second inaugural with what he called his freedom speech which is -- in terms of projecting american force, moral and military around the world in the wake of 9/11 and the doctrine of preemptive military action. >> you knows the reference to lincoln, we talk about being in a divided america now. in many ways we are politically. but you think about lincoln and that inauguration, both of his, it was a different level. >> different level all together. he is involved in the conflict where half a million people would be killed, the end of channeled slavery. a lot is at stake. we're fighting now but not anywhere like that, thank god. >> we're about to see the introduction of the first lady of the united states, michelle obama. as you watched her grow in this role the last four years, what do you think? >> well she has done -- she is a, the most popular person in america just about. she has firmed up the sense of this family as a very responsible family that people can relate to, which was not always going to be obvious.
including a republican president, george h.w. bush, has ordered executive orders tightening gun control restrictions. >> yes. >> megyn: how far can president obama go? >> well, it's a great question, megyn. the statute on which george h.w. bush relied said that the president could ban importation into the u.s. of weapons that were not, quote, suitable for sporting purposes, closed quotes. and left up to the president and his advisors to determine what that means, suitable for sporting purposes. george h.w. bush, himself a hunter and throughout his career, candidly, a defender of second amendment rights tightened up the meaning for suitable for sporting purposes so as to exclude from importing into the u.s. you could own it in the u.s. if you somehow got it. if you're a dealer here, couldn't bring it. if you're a seller in another country, couldn't sell it in the u.s. and guns determined to have purposes other than sporting. this is an example of an area of governmental authority where the president has discretion. president obama, and that was 1968 statute from the lbj years, it's still
. >> and david gregory, about a two-mile drive. >> and you remember in the modern era, george w. bush -- the language plate is -- >> yeah, the license plate just for a second here is a story. it's a -- kind of a protest legal local license plate here in washington, d.c. taxation without representation. the president has opted to use them on all the limousines. >> and that always comes up for presidents. >> d.c. has a delegate, a nonvoting member of congress. >> george w. bush met president clinton and they got along famously. they were swapping stories and how bush raised the sector of the shadow returns every time clinton would try to campaign for al gore. so that was chummier. and they kept on a pretty good relationship. >> you don't have to look that far back. in 2008, you had george w. bush and president-elect obama riding over together. while i think the obamas were pleasantly surprised as how smooth the transition was, how the bush administration bent over backward toes make sure there was a smooth transition of power, obama had run against bush and the bush policies and to this
. but in october of 2005, george w. bush signed into law a federal law called the protection of the lawful commerce act. you know you have a lot of power in congress when you don't even have to come up with a snappy acronym to get it enacted. it was enacted in 2005 and a tough speech today the enormous protection for these kind of lawsuits to be whether they were in conjunction with them or not. they gave them a very broad immunity from liability. the kind of immunity that essentially no other product manufacturer in the united states enjoys. they didn't provide people that were harmed with any kind of alternative compensation scheme and they even said that there but retroactively applied to the pending lawsuits that had to be dismissed and in fact they were and as a result the public health function of lawsuits and litigation in general, something that steve taught us about for many years was eroded. there were some relatively narrow exceptions to the plcaa that allowed the lawsuits to proceed nevertheless. and new york city took advantage of one of those exceptions. one of those exceptions is the
point. host: let's go back to january 2005 as george w. bush was sworn into a second term. >> on this day prescribe bid law and marked by ceremony, we celebrate the wisdom of our constitution and recall the deep commitments that unite our country. i am grateful for the honor of this hour, mindful of the times in which we live, and determined to fulfill the oath that will i have sworn and you have witnessed. at this second gathering, our duties are defined not by the words i use but by the history we have seen together. for a half a century america defended our own freedom by standing watch on distant borders. after the shipwreck of communism, 10 years of quiet. and then there came a day of fire. we have seen our vulnerability and we have seen its deepest source. for as long as whole regions of the world simmer in resentment prone to ideologies that feed hatred and excuse murder, violence will gather and multiple and cross the most defended borders and raise a mortal threat. there is only once force of history that can break the reign of hatred and resentment and expose the

. george h.w. bush banned the importation of semiautomatic weapons. but with this president, with this issue that so many people are passionate about and feel the same about newtown, horrified, it's amazing this is going to be one of those divisive issues in which the president goes off on his own and congress goes off on their own and together, there is a lot of similarities of what they want, but it seems as though this white house has no interest in reaching a consensus. so for four weeks he talks to people. i don't know what he got accomplished in that period. but you could just see us in dividing lines again, like the fiscal cliff, and just like the debt ceiling is about to. >> steve: because when they call for an assault weapon ban, there is absolutely no chance that's going to get through and it's not just the nra that says it. it's harry reid who says it's unlikely it could pass the house. harry reid says it's unlikely it could pass the senate. >> gretchen: that doesn't mean that he wouldn't agree with it, though. it's just because the -- >> steve: voted against it i
